"Buy a toaster oven. The best brand is Cuisinart...you know you need it. You know you want it." That is what Eric Ripert was saying to me - telepathically - as he cooked these figs in a toaster oven for his series "Get Toasted." It almost worked. Then, Marcus slapped me, and I snapped out of it: I could use my regular oven to make bacon wrapped figs.
This recipe is so easy you don't even need a video. Buy figs and bacon, peel figs, wrap them in bacon, secure bacon with a toothpick, cook for eight minutes on broil, remove from oven, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Sure, you don't need the video, but I know you want it. It's starring Eric Ripert.
